Scenes of the City: Ocean Beach
For this week's Scenes of the City, we headed out to Ocean Beach and chatted up a few people taking advantage of this sudden spell of good weather.
The Woolley family, from Denver, Colorado, enjoyed the sunshine and tried to build a sand castle and moat in the rising tide.
Ted Danyo, 28, a law student at USF, made use of the wind and water for some kiteboarding.
Friends Eli Theman,28, Katrina Cairo,22, and Travis Knapp-Prasek, 26, hang out at the base of the Ocean Beach seawall.

These three friends - John Raycroft, Michael Mashura, and Todd Dellauile, all 24-years-old - enjoyed a stroll down the sunny beach while visiting from out of town from Cincinnatti and Pittsburg.
Artist John Whitmarsh, 38, utilized the public fire pits at Ocean Beach to char recycled wood planks for a signboard that will be shown in front of his art studio.

Check out his website here.
